OxyContin, a highly addictive painkiller, is a prescription medication that is frequently abused by people. When this medication is prescribed to treat a pain condition or to alleviate pain as a result of an injury, it can offer sufferers the relief they need in order to resume a healthy life. However, if an individual begins taking this medication for longer than it is intended, consumes OxyContin in amounts that exceed a doctor’s recommendations, or takes this medication for recreational purposes, it can be a slippery slope leading to addiction. Allowing this type of substance abuse to persist can result in several cumbersome obstacles for both the abuser and his or her loved ones. Fortunately, there are effective treatment options available that can help put an end to this perilous form of chemical dependency concern.
At Bayside Marin Treatment Center in California, we understand the anguish that occurs when an individual is suffering from an addiction to OxyContin. For this reason, and in order to help these people achieve the lives they desire, we are proud to offer the effective OxyContin rehab that is needed to help individuals with chemical dependency concerns truly heal and recover in a lasting way. Let our staff of compassionate and knowledgeable professionals assist you or someone you care about in coming to realize an existence that is not dictated by the voracious cycle of addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.
How to Help a Loved One
Helping a loved one get treatment for OxyContin addiction
When a loved one is battling an addiction to OxyContin, the use, abuse, and acquisition of this painkiller is often the center of his or her universe. Concerned friends and family members who bear witness to this life-threatening form of self-destruction often feel as though nothing can be done to help the person they care about in defeating his or her addiction. And while the decision to seek rehab & treatment is ultimately left up to the person who needs it, there are some steps that friends and family members can take to help their loved one get treatment. Consider the following if you wish to help someone overcome an addiction to OxyContin:
- Learn about addiction and familiarize yourself with the warning signs associated with OxyContin abuse, withdrawal, and overdose.
- Establish a safety plan with other concerned loved ones in the event the person you care about is in need of emergency medical attention.
- With compassion and understanding, confront your loved one about his or her addiction.
- Discuss the need for treatment with your loved one.
- Offer to help in researching treatment options with your loved one.
- Commit to being supportive to your loved one during this trying time and inform your loved one of your intentions to do so.
- Encourage your loved one to schedule and follow through with any scheduled assessments for admission to a treatment center.
- Offer to go with your loved one to his or her admissions assessment if he or she feels more comfortable with you there.
As a concerned friend or family members, it is also beneficial to establish your own support network. Whether it is with other concerned loved ones or via a support group, it is important to remember that you also need to care for yourself while your loved one works on his or her recovery.
Why Consider Treatment
Why consider treatment for OxyContin addiction at Bayside Marin Treatment Center in California
Those who begin to abuse OxyContin may not always be aware of the damage they are doing to their lives. Allowing a chemical dependency concern of this kind to remain present in a person’s life can have a significant impact on his or her mental and physical health, financial status, employment status, and quality of relationships with others. Mental health concerns can become more severe, irreversible organ damage can occur, money could dwindle, one’s job could be terminated, and a person can find him or herself alone without the support of loved ones. Additionally, an OxyContin addiction increases a person’s chances for experiencing an overdose, which could be fatal if medical attention is not sought. Effective treatment can prevent the aforementioned effects, help a person realize why and how this type of concern has arisen in his or her life, and instill the skills and confidence needed to achieve and sustain lasting recovery.

We believe that truly effective care must be holistic and incorporate a wide range of approaches in order to successfully treat all of the concerns that plague our clients most.

Additionally, we are steadfast in helping our clients set attainable goals while in treatment and for the future so as to instill the belief that a history of addiction and mental illness do not have to be barriers for achieving personal ambitions. When clients partake in our state-of-the-art residential program, the following therapeutic approaches can be woven into their personalized treatment plans:
Medical detoxification: A long-standing addiction to certain drugs, such as OxyContin, or alcohol will likely lead to physical dependence. When clients come to Bayside Marin for rehabilitation, yet require assistance in overcoming withdrawal after developing a dependence upon substances, medical detoxification services will be implemented into their treatment plans and will take place prior to engaging in our residential programming. Medical staff are on hand 24/7 to monitor the health of each client receiving detox and, when necessary, will utilize certain medications in order to make this process as comfortable and painless as possible.
Medication management: When an individual is battling a mental health condition at the same time as an addiction to OxyContin, the use of certain medications may be incorporated into his or her treatment plan while at Bayside Marin. The recommendation for medication management services will be based on the needs of each client and meetings with a psychiatrist will occur each week to monitor how clients respond to any medications prescribed. Our caring nurses are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in monitoring each client’s progress while taking medication(s).
Individual therapy: One-to-one sessions with a mental health professional can be a time for clients to process their thoughts, feelings, emotions, and triumphs while at Bayside Marin. These sessions take place twice per week or more if it is deemed necessary for a client’s progress.
Couples and family therapy: Available on an as-needed basis, California’s Bayside Marin Treatment Center offers couples and family therapy sessions. These sessions are conducted by each client’s primary therapist and can be a time to improve communication and foster a greater sense of support between clients and their loved ones.
Group therapy: A core component to the care offered at Bayside Marin is group counseling. Each client will partake in group therapy sessions at least three times per day, which feature the following topics:
- Dietary counseling
- Family education
- Continuing care planning
- Treatment planning
- Substance abuse education
- Discharge planning
Experiential therapy: True holistic treatment involves the inclusion of experiential therapies. Bayside Marin’s care includes these therapies as a way to help clients realize the connection between their minds, bodies, and spirits. Offered once per week, the following experiential therapies are featured at Bayside Marin:
- Art therapy
- Massage therapy
- Therapeutic gardening
Family program: Bayside Marin is proud to offer a rehab program for the family members and loved ones of the clients we treat. This program, which features psychoeducational opportunities, occurs two times per month and assists those closest to our clients in understanding their roles during the recovery process. This specialized program also helps family members and loved ones in establishing their own networks of support and provides a forum to relate and bond with others who have endured similar struggles.
Continuing care and levels of treatment for OxyContin addiction
At Bayside Marin, we are dedicated to making sure that our clients remain successful in their recovery process long after receiving treatment at our OxyContin abuse treatment center. To us, this dedication lies in the thorough discharge planning we do and the continuing care options that we offer to our clients and their loved ones.
During the first few days of addiction treatment, our continuing care coordinators meet with clients to begin the process of preparing for discharge. These staff members will also periodically meet with clients during treatment to check in on their progress in order to determine what each client’s needs will be upon leaving Bayside Marin. Detailed discharge packets are created with the input from our clients, and our continuing care coordinators will put forth their best efforts to ensure that the most appropriate referrals are made. Additionally, if any follow-up appointments are needed, these same staff members will schedule them so as to make the discharge process as streamlined and as simple as possible.
Bayside Marin also offers each client and their loved ones 12 months of free continuing care once a client completes his or her treatment. A recovery coach is assigned to each client upon graduating from our residential care and will work with clients and family members to ensure that they are receiving ample support and the resources needed to continue the positive progress made while at Bayside Marin. Any and all services recommended are based on the needs of clients and their loved ones, and each person involved in this after care program is encouraged to adhere to treatment recommendations and update the recovery coach on new concerns so as to prevent relapse and other hindrances in the recovery process.
Yet another facet of continuing care offered by Bayside Marin is the Recovery and Renewal service. This service is for alumni to return to Bayside Marin Treatment Center to rejuvenate the skills needed to help them remain successful in their recovery journeys. Former clients can spend a few days in the program’s milieu and, once again, leave Bayside Marin with the confidence required to remain steadfast on the road towards a healthier lifestyle.
At California’s Bayside Marin, we want to afford our clients with the best opportunities for achieving the recovered lives they deserve. If you or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to OxyContin or another substance, your search for a world-class treatment center is over. As a rehab that offers superior and effective care, we can help you or your loved one come to realize a healed existence that can lead to a bright and happy future that is not restricted by the presence of unmanaged mental health symptoms and chemical dependency concerns.
